I Like it, I had bought one where the hold down piece expands in the slot, doesn’t hold that well. Holding in the tee slot is much better. Examined the pictures to see how you made it. Looks like you removed the whole center for the hold down bolts leaving a small amount of wood on the edges. Does that work OK and not brake off. I was thinking of only recessing the heads. Looks great and add alot of safety too.

Nice. So as you tighten the nuts, it pull the whole thing tight to the T-slot and surface of the table, is that right?

thanks everyone.

Brian – It holds very tight and I have tried to move it and can’t. Nothing has broken yet.

Bob – Yes. Just make sure the miter guide is slightly shorter than depth of slot.

I think these are pretty nice. I made some a while ago out of pine and the craftsman saw I made them for is with someone else now but the feather boards are still in use. I have some ash in my storage area. when I get some spare time (LOL) I will give these a go.
